Happy Early #BookBday (10/20/14 Edition)

Today we’d like to wish an early Happy #BookBday to

WHO WE BE by Jeff Chang
In this follow-up to the award-winning classic CAN’T STOP WON’T STOP, Jeff Chang takes an intelligent, honest look at the most dramatic demographic and cultural shifts in American history over the last fifty years. “In this engaging look at race and culture, Chang raises questions but admits there are no simple or easy answers as culture continues to evolve.” — Booklist

BATHING THE LION by Jonathan Carroll
Five people who live in the same New England town go to sleep one night and all share the same hyper-realistic dream. Some of these people know each other; some don’t, but all are united in the fight against Chaos. “Carroll drenches prosaic modern life with horrifying surrealism in this hallucinatory contemporary myth, which mingles terror and awe with family strife. This lyrical and thematically rich novel is not to be underestimated.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
